Product Description

Captured rebel Scotsman Alex MacKinnon barely escapes death when the king grants him mercy to the colony of North Carolina-he's indentured to Englishman Edmund Carey as a blacksmith.

Against his will, Alex is drawn into the struggles of Carey's slaves and those of his stepdaughter, Joanna Carey. A mistress with a servant's heart, Joanna is expected to wed her father's overseer, Phineas Reeves, but finds herself drawn instead to the new blacksmith. When blame falls unfairly upon Alex he escapes to the mountains where he encounters Reverend Pauling,preacher and friend of the Careys, now a prisoner of the Cherokees. Haunted by his abandoning of Joanna, Alex tries to settle into life with the Cherokees, until yet another attempt to forge his freedom and he's faced with the choice that's long haunted him: continue down his rebellious path or embrace the faith. But the price of such mercy is total surrender, and perhaps Alex's very life.

Editorial Reviews

"With heart-pounding realism, The King’s Mercy draws readers into the web of plantation life, where the price of freedom is hammered out at the hero’s forge and in the lives of every compelling character that surrounds him. Lori Benton pens a remarkable story of mercy and grace, the chains that bind us, and the ultimate freedom to be found in Christ."—Laura Frantz, Christy Award–winning author of The Lacemaker

"The King’s Mercy is a compelling tale of the early frontier, where the wealthy flourish and the poor serve, but sometimes the lines between slavery and freedom are not what you think. Lori Benton is a master at weaving together a beautiful tapestry of cultures and traditions, and her characters will live on in my heart for years to come."—Karen Barnett, award-winning author of Where the Fire Falls and The Road to Paradise

"In this beautifully written novel, Lori Benton sweeps readers back to North Carolina in the 1700s to a slave plantation that’s hosting a terrifying evil. Lori is an expert at capturing time and place, and her dual skills give us a powerful glimpse into the longings of both an indentured servant who craves his freedom and the much-loved daughter of his master. The King’s Mercy is an intriguing, compelling story about God’s mercy and poignant redemption for those who choose to follow Him."—Melanie Dobson, award-winning author of Catching the Wind and Hidden Among the Stars

"Lori Benton is a master storyteller. She breathes life into her characters and historical settings, drawing you in so deep that when the phone rings, you find yourself saying, ’What be that wee sound?’ Highly recommended!"—Karen Ball, writer and editor
